Did you know that after Christmas, stores tend to have some of the best sales of the year? While most people believe Black Friday is the day to go out and shop for those deep discounts, if there is a way to wait until after Christmas to buy what you want or need, you should do just that. So bring out your gift cards and let’s start saving!
On December 26 most stores will have massive sales and deals available for shoppers to take advantage of while visiting. These stores include retail chains that sell clothes, food, and even beauty products.
If you would love to get a good deal on products that you can use, follow this simple guide on shopping after Christmas sales.
Get Your Christmas Goods the Day After Christmas
If you love decorating for Christmas but do not like paying full price for the decorations, the day after Christmas is the best time to go out to grab the decorations that you will use next Christmas. You can find plenty of Christmas decorations that will no longer cost nearly as much as they did earlier in the year, such as:
- Window Clings
- Holiday-Themed Candy Jars
- Tree Toppers, Balls, and Assorted Decorations
- Christmas Trees
- Christmas Tree Skirts
- Holiday Lawn Decorations
These are just a few of the many items you will find deeply discounted after Christmas. If you want to get that large inflatable Santa Claus for the front lawn, right after Christmas is the right time to do it when prices get slashed.
During this time, you can also purchase incredibly cheap holiday-themed coffee mugs and accessories that you can end up handing out as gifts to loved ones next Christmas. It is a great way to prepare for the future while making sure you can save more money.
Check For Deep Discounts on Toys at Target
If you want to get some fantastic deals on toys, check out what Target has to offer in January. Target will usually run its mega toy sale in the middle of January, but last year, the sale started a bit earlier.
If you would like to try to snag some toys that your children will love or that you can give out as gifts throughout the year, check the Target website or app regularly at the end of December and the beginning of January to keep an eye on the sales.
Some of the toys at Target will be up to 70% off the regular retail price. If you have the cash to spare, it is the best time to go shopping for the children in your life. You can grab these items at such low prices, store them in a closet, and then hand them out as gifts for birthdays, first communions, good report cards, and more.
You may be surprised to see some of the leading toy brands available at such low prices, but this is an excellent thing for your pockets!
Visit Ulta to Get Discounted Holiday-Themed Products
If you love makeup and other beauty products, you will love the sales that Ulta offers. Right after Christmas, Ulta will have a mega sale on all of its holiday-themed products.
- You can find eyeshadow palettes, lip liner and lip gloss sets, bath sets, and more at up to 90% off the original price.
- If there is an item that was initially priced at $21.99 and it gets discounted by 90%, you will only pay around $2.20 for that item.
- With savings like these, you can begin stocking up on products that you can keep and give out as gifts throughout the year to your loved ones.
- You might have a few best friends, sisters, or other relatives who would love to receive these beauty items as gifts.
Besides finding products at deeply discounted prices, Ulta will typically offer some coupons to customers who would like to save even more. If you stack your coupons on top of the savings, you can end up with bags full of Ulta products without spending more than you want to pay for these items.
Stock Up on Holiday-Themed Treats From Various Stores
The perfect time to get holiday-themed treats is right after Christmas. Some of these treats include:
- Gingerbread Cookies
- Chocolate Star Cookies
- Santa Claus Chocolates
- Holiday-Themed Fruit Snacks
- Holiday-Themed Cereal
Any treats with a holiday theme, such as Santa, elves, snowmen, or anything else like that, will get discounted too much lower prices.
You can find great deals on these items at stores like Walgreens, CVS Pharmacy, Aldi, Rite-Aid, ShopRite, and more. The stores will discount these items because they will need to get rid of the inventory to make room for the next items, such as Valentine’s Day treats and Easter treats.
Because they need to make room for those items, they will lower the prices of anything that has to do with the holiday season, making it possible for you to start stocking up on the treats that you and your family enjoy the most without spending much.
View the Electronics Department at Some of the Big Box Stores
Although not advertised nearly as much, most big box stores will lower the prices on most of their electronics a few days or weeks after Christmas. You can visit the sites to check and monitor costs.
Some of the sites to see include Wal-Mart, Target, Sam’s Club, and Costco. You may find televisions, laptops, tablets, and other electronic components at lower prices than you saw on Black Friday!
If you currently need something, such as a television, it is an excellent time to start looking for one right after Christmas.
